Creative Writing Workshops for Correctional
Facilities with Author Peggy Rambach
This workshop gives inmates the opportunity
to record and dramatize their past, as well as navigate the complexities
of the present through the forms of memoir, fiction, and poetry.
Participants will read work-in-progress for discussion, affirmation,
and critique, and learn the skills and techniques that will make
their writing communicate lasting insight for both the writer
and his or her readers.

I can become and do anything I want. So, I say again, thank
you Peggy Rambach and please continue to open up the world
of creative writing to people who would not otherwise know its
joy, because by understanding creative writing as you have taught
me, not only my mind has been opened and challenged, but also
